Does Hülkenberg have a chance at Red Bull?
Sebastian Vettel is now off the market – and suddenly the Red Bull driver carousel begins to turn. Does another German get a chance?
Suddenly, however, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner is no longer ruling out the possibility of using the free driver market. “We have always preferred to develop talent ourselves,” says the Briton. But he adds: “If the pool isn’t big enough, we’ll look outside of it.”
Alex Albon sees no country against Verstappen
When asked specifically about Sergio Perez, who was put on the road by Racing Point, Horner emphasizes at Sky: “There is not only Perez on the market, but also a very strong other driver, Nico Hülkenberg.”
This is another reason why team boss Horner rules out a return: “Pierre has done a fantastic job since he took the step back. He has found his confidence, drives great. That’s good to see. It’s nice that it works for him. “But, says the Briton,” it wouldn’t make sense to switch drivers. AlphaTauri is more of a sister team than a junior team. ”
